I saw your black dress lying on the mattress
Know that I should run but I'm a sucker for an actress

I'm generally a gentleman, no lie
But I can not control my hands tonight
And when I start to stare I just don't care enough to stop my eyes

I was only here too put her in the rear-view
It never crossed my mind that
She could be the one too
Make me want to come through
I should have closed my eyes

She's like a prom queen, eighteen
She cut me down with a TKO I know
I wasn't ready when you're nineteen, nineteen
I'll take you down with a TKO you know that I'll be waiting for you

And I've never been a gentleman in my life
But there's a first time for everything so I'll try
And when our friends are gone I'll fight want on my mind

And I'll be waiting for you
Second-best it gets to me
With your black dress and mattress scenes
